of the united states. >> there is a coordinated effort to make it about romney and whether or not he should speak. whether or not he should say anything about it. whether or not it is presidential for romney. we're only supposed to have one president now. at times like this. well we don't have one unless romney speaks up. >> jennifer: so they were so happy. mission accomplished! for them. and therein lies the problem. while president obama and secretary clinton spoke about the crisis with steady, seriousness, they exuded calm, they had clarity and strength, mitt romney, by contrast, was prematurely hyperventilating, maybe in response to the most extreme voices in his party. his campaign was in panic mode. and an international crisis was brewing and who did he listen to? could it have been the likes of rush limbaugh and laura ing graham and other neocons on his team? president obama was presidential and strong. mitt romney and paul ryan looked like bit players in top radio's amateur hour. stature, diplomacy steadiness?
are protesting? >> definitely built up resentment against the west and the united states exploding. another thing that may give people solace is some of these protests albeit explosive were relatively small. today's protest in cairo was about 2,000. last year you had hundreds of thousands. in sudan it was 5,000. it doesn't mean we shouldn't be alarmed, but they are not drawing everybody. >> jennifer: today the taliban attacked the allied base in afghanistan where prince harry is stationed. is that about him or the movie, or something else? >> it was absolutely about him. the taliban put out a statement saying we will kill prince harry. they were looking for him and going after him. >> jennifer: let's get to another really important nexus here which is iran and israel. first of all does this wave mean that iran is next to act up? >> no, i don't -- look you have had times where iran has had its own revolution in 2009. what iran could do is seize the distraction. the u.s. will be distractioned with this right now. there is an election and a major crisis in the middle east pr
of the united states, my father my hero, joe biden. [ cheers and applause ] >> i move to suspend the roll and nominate by acclaimation joe biden as the vice presidential candidate. [ cheers and applause ] >> jennifer: let me just say i love joe biden. that was him tearing up at the convention last night, as his son beau who is also the attorney general of delaware nominated his father his hero for a second term. the pundits have spent a lot of time rehashing the most fiery speeches, but there were also a lot of moments like that. here are some of our favorites. >> it's about whether we do for our fellow americans what my crew did for me, whether we'll look out for the hardest hit and the disabled whether we'll pool together in a time of need whether we'll refuse to give up until the job is done. >>> barack knows the american dream because he has lived it, and he wants everyone in this country -- everyone, so have the same opportunity no matter who we are, or where we're from or what we look like, or who we
been a congressman, he's obviously united states senator now. he knows policy. he was a trade rep. he was a white house -- in congress. this guy knows his stuff. but i think interestingly apparently, he's somewhat of a method actor. he listened to tapes, for instance, of the books on tape of barack obama and he's really able to take on the effect and the cadence of the person he's playing. and he, too, has great bedside manner. he's somewhat of a prankster. he develops very warm relationships not only with republicans but democrats have nice things to say about him. >> jennifer: interesting because he was so close to being selected for vice president. i don't know that being a debate stand-in is a good second nod. but president obama is going to be heading to henderson nevada for three days of debate prep behind closed doors. when you and i helped to prepare joe biden i'm curious from your perspective, jill, what was the most surprising thing to you about that whole debate prep? >> that's so interesting. well,
of the united states, george washington, adams, jefferson madison all agreed on one thing. don't create political parties. don't especially create the kind of permanent factions that we have today. where democrats are always on one side and republicans are always on the other side. and they just simply are unable to come together. even on the most urgent issues to find a way to compromise and get something done. >> jennifer: well, we've polarization from the senate floor today. let's take a listen. >> the number one job of this congress domestically should have been more private sector jobs. the president's long-held view of redistribution as a goal for the government is not going to accomplish that. >> the president's put our entire economy in jeopardy in order to serve his own political interests. >> jennifer: it's just -- it is classic example of what goes on every single day on the floor. you think that goes against the principle of the founding fathers as you mentioned and separation of powers? >> the issue is not
is the defense budget. >> jennifer: right. >> we spend more money the united states, the next 17 countries combined, 15 of the countries happen to be our allies. >> there's some room there. i think your point is a good one. easy to say -- we would cut. millions of dollars. it will sound specific. all they have to do is say we've done this, we've done that. we've done all of these things. republicans have done zero on the issue of new revenue. we've gone above and beyond. >> jennifer: this is the important point. when you answer a question in a debate, you say your point then you pivot to an attack. you always have to pivot to an attack. you want to get your opponent off of their game. >> this is a choice, not a referendum. >> jennifer: mark, you asked this question that you think governor romney could be concerned about. because you haven't been specific with how you would pay for your 20% across the board tax cuts, democrats say it would end up costing the middle class. specifically, i'm the moderator specifi
